The Religious Education Committee will be continuing the Friendly Religious Education Consultant (FREC) program that supports visitors to Annual Session who share their knowledge and experience as Friends Religious Educators. This year we will welcome John A. Stephens! John has been a member of Alexandria Friends Meeting at Woodlawn where he has taught FDS to middle and high school aged teens. Before that, he attended San Francisco Friends Meeting intermittently throughout 1999 and 2000. His religious web stewardship is focused on two monthly meetings, Valley Friends Meeting and Woodlawn, and a handful of Quaker related peace projects. Currently, he serves Valley Friends Meeting as the clerk of its Communications Committee. John will speak with Friends on a personal basis, lead interest groups as topics arise around discernment and FDS, share in teaching Friends about our new website during the RE sources workshop and at other occasions that arise, support Friends interested in web research on topics related to FDS, and share in the JYM program as way opens. Please come with questions so that he may provide the most help to your needs.
